to start. mr. president, you will go first. >> i want to thank the university of denver for your hospitality. 20 years ago, i became the luckiest man on earth because michelle obama agreed to marry me. so i just want to wish, sweetie, you have the anniversary and let you know that a year from now we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. [laughter] four years ago, we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. millions of jobs were lost. the auto industry was on the brink of collapse. the financial system had frozen up. because of the resilience and determination of the american people, we began to fight our way back. over the last 30 months, we have seen 5 million jobs in the budget we have seen 5 million jobs created. we know we have a lot of work to do. the question is not where we have been, but where we are going. governor romney has a perspective that says, if we cut taxes, skewed towards the wealthy and roll back regulations, we will be better off. i have a better view. we have to invest in education and training. it is important

and you elected to go last. so you have a closing two minutes mr. president. >> obama: jim i want to thank you, and i want to thank governor romney because i think this was a terrific debate and i want to thank the university of denver. four years ago we were going through a major crisis and yet my faith and confidence in the american future is undiminished and the reason is because of its people. because of the woman i net in north carolina who decided at 5 to go back to school because she wanted to inspire her daughter, and now has a job because of the training she has gotten. because of the company in minnesota who was willing to give up salaries and perks for their employees. the auto workers in detroit take pride in building the best car in the world because it gives them that sense of pride that they are helping to build america. so how do we build on those strengths, and everybody i'm proposing for the next four years, in terms of developing american energy or closing loopholes for companies shipping jobs overseas and focusing on companies creating j
was on the campaign trail. large crowds awaited both candidates actually on the trail. president obama greeted by some 30,000 supporters in madison, wisconsin, came out ready to fight back finally and showed some of the fire that people were looking for in denver. >> when i got on the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but i know it couldn't have been mitt romney. because the real mitt romney's been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy, and yet the fellow on the stage last night who looked like mitt romney said he did not know anything about that. but i just want to make sure i got this straight. he'll get rid of regulations on wall street, but he's going to crack down on sesame street. thank goodness somebody's finally cracking down on big bird. who knew that he was responsible for all these deficits? >> mika, what were your thoughts about barack obama not being able to deliver a single line like that when he didn't have the teleprompter and yesterday reading what his staff wrote for him so effectively
, it will be a competitive campaign -- if romney had as good of night in denver, and this doesn't move the polls by more than a point, then you have to almost just conclude it is just not in the cards for him this year. but obama still has electoral college problems he is going to give to romney. in ohio he is up by five on average in the polls that would give him enough votes to win the election. >> jamal: one more quick question, are you following the senate races at all? >> yes, people talk about obama's convention bounce, but in senate races there has been a bigger shift towards democrats, where we have about an 80% chance of keeping the senate. individual race especially in swing states in ohio florida, michigan, democratic candidates moved way ahead also in wisconsin and virginia so it seems like obama will have enough coat tails to have democrats keep the senate. at this point it is almost as likely that democrats would hold or maintain the number of seats and actually a net of three and lose the senate. >> thank you. that was nate silver from the "new york times" blog. the
